1956 - 100th Football League Appearance & Start: Ken Plant
1979 - Trevor Whymark plays for Canadian team Vancouver Whitecaps and wins the North American Soccer League Play-offs. He scores both goals in front of nearly 65,000 at Giants Stadium, New Jersey in a 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
1989 - 400th FL Appearance for U's Ian Allinson
2013 - The U's are beaten by Coventry City at Northampton Town's ground Sixfields owing to a dispute between the football club and the stadium owners. United's team suffers an injury crisis with Freddie Sears, Gavin Massey, Josh Thompson, and Sanchez Watt all out with Ryan Dickson forced off after twenty minutes through illness. To add to the list of unavailable players, Magnus Okuonghae is suspended with Brian Wilson playing in central defence. Three U's players could have made their debuts off the bench, but in the end only Mason Spence does and secures a MOTM performance.
